From Creation to Visarjan of Ganpati Bappa Idol
I can never plan the design of my Ganesha idol...it comes naturally to me. So if a client requests to replicate a design, I simply say NO. as my designs comes naturally from my heart and they are original. Though, I take care of small details if client specially wants them in their idol. Like this year, a Tamilian family wanted a big idol for their home with specification for a traditional crown and a small snake around the waist. I happy to found about the significance of a snake around Ganesha's waist. There is a long story behind but in short, the snake around belly represent all forms of energy.
Ganesh Chaturthi festival is celebrated in a very grand way in India..especially in Maharashtra and Southern India. This year, I was surprised with the calls I got from people in Noida for Ganesha Idol. People either waned to learn making clay ganesha idol or want to buy an idol for their home for worshiping. Im sharing couple of pics of Idols made by students or bought by people and how they decorated the idol (Ganesha Sthapna) at home and finally how performed visarjan in an eco-friendly way. Happy Ganesha Festival :)
